Redneck Fishing Tournament 2012

After last years crazy event I thought I would try to get back down to the Redneck Fishing Tournament this year with a Camo hover. So my partner Gary Hartman of G&M Motorsports will be joining me in Bath. Betty has offered to let us fly our hover between heats on Friday and Saturday as a bit of a show so we decided lets do it. After last years tournament we decided to take our hover out on the river up north of Bath to see how the Asian Carp responded to us. The results were interesting and if you show up at the Redneck this year you will see what we mean. Remember August 3 & 4 it is an event you need to be at. We will also be introducing a new program that will help anyone own a hover. We hope to have 3 or 4 hovers at the tournament this year so make sure you stop by and see us. If your interested in taking a test flight in a hover drop me an e-mail and we'll see if we can work it in during the tournament.

Draught a new experience

Boaters beware don’t follow me I’m going where you can’t. I would like to hang that sign on my hover right now. I see the water levels of many rivers around me dropping and boaters are limited to smaller and smaller areas due to prop and hull damage. One of the cool things about the hover is you don’t need water and if you are flying on water you don’t need much of it. When draughts come as they seem to do on a regular cycle hovering becomes and even more exciting experience. Flying over new sand bars discovering sunken treasures that are normally covered by water now we have access to those areas and if they happen to be mud flats they become an unexpected new experience. Flying of smooth flat mud provides you with a fast ride. Mud can be nearly as fast as smooth ice I was flying on the Pecatonica river which is notorious for its silt and I sort of forgot what I was on and jumped out of the hover when I set it down and sunk up to my knees in mud, so you have to be careful when you’re landing on the mud flats it can be more annoying than dangerous but it does make a real mess in the hover. So if your living in an area with draught or a lot of mud flats head out with your hover and have fun you are in for a really great day hovering.
